BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Club at Briarcliff Manor, a new fee-for-service Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), announced today that it has received a Certificate of Authority from the New York State Department of Health.
The Certificate of Authority, which was unanimously approved by the State Continuing Care Retirement Community Council, represents a major milestone for the $300 million development and culminates a nearly two-year intensive licensure application process. The Club at Briarcliff Manor is only the 14th CCRC in New York State to have received state approval.
"We are delighted to have achieved this important milestone in the development of this exciting new community. This is a major step forward for our project which will redefine the concept of luxury retirement living in this region," said Matthew K.

Mr. Phillips said the State's issuance of the Certificate of Authority is significant on several levels. "This approval shows that our ownership group has met the State's standards for experience and competency. It also demonstrates that our projected development costs and financing structure satisfy the State's feasibility requirements," he said.
